    Recently I moved my D. petiolaris "red" from the window sill to a grow rack. It immediately became redder and dewier. It has begun to flower with 2 stalks. I noticed today that the newest petioles are much shorter than the older ones. Is this a result of flowering, or is it an indication of impending dormancy?



    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    it depends.... could be dormancy, or could be higher light. I find that if the plant starts losing some dew and the tentacles no longer open, it may be going dormant.
    Can you post a pic? that would help.

    Sounds like an increase in light for it. Thats may cause it to become more compact, if you will.
    that makes no logic

    Sounds like the redder and dewier leaves are due to increased light levels and possibly heat from those lights.

    Flowering and shorter leaves are a give-away for a wooly going through a shorter photoperiod (at least my for my D. ordensis )
